(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- As we previously reported, Nafessa Williams makes her daytime debut on Wednesday, March 23, as Deanna Forbes, the former girlfriend of James Ford (Nic Robuck), on ABC's "One Life to Live."  And, while Williams recently signed a four-year contract with the show, her time in Llanview was originally intended to be much shorter. Last fall, when the model and aspiring actress was first cast by the show, her character was only slated to appear in three episodes of the daytime drama.  Fortunately for Williams, however, the show decided to further develop the character of Deanna, who will try to drive a wedge between budding lovers James and Starr (Kristen Alderson). "This is more than I ever dreamed of.  I'm super excited and really grateful for the experience," the twenty-something actress states in an interview with the Philadelphia Daily News.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- Expect to be seeing more of Todd Manning's oldest son Jack in the coming months on "One Life to Live," as Andrew Trischitta has becme the soap's newest contract cast member, one month to the day after he first appeared on the show. The news, which was posted earlier today on ABC Soaps in Depth's Twitter page, may come as somewhat as a surprise to some "One Life" fans, considering Trischitta has only appeared on screen in a handful of episodes since joining the show earlier this year (his first airdate was February 22).  The actor replaced fan favorite Carmen LoPorto, who had played Jack since 2007. Since Trishcitta was cast in the role, Jack has taken on a darker tone, proving that he really is his father's son, by bullying one of his classmates, Shane Morasco (Austin Williams), because he has asthma.  Look for the storyline to heat...
Time and time again we've been asked how daytime shows (those airing only on ABC, CBS and NBC) such as "The View," "The Price is Right," "Let's Make a Deal" and even "The Talk" do in the ratings compared to the daytime soaps that we report on weekly here at Soap Opera Network. So we thought we would compile ratings for daytime programming, separate from just the soaps, and also see how CBS' "The Talk" is doing when compared to "As The World Turns," the show it replaced this season.
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- He may have only recently taken over the role of Sam Manning, the son of reformed rapist Todd Manning (Trevor St. John) and the late, mentally disturbed Margaret Cochran (Tari Signor) on "One Life to Live," but five-year-old Patrick Gibbons, Jr. is already making the most of his time in the spot light.  The kindergartner says in an interview that he becomes "very excited when see myself on TV.  I love it." However, Gibbons' parents almost passed on the chance to audition for the long-running daytime drama, believing their son's chances of landing the role were slim at best. In an interview with M. English of the Montgomery News in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, Gibbons' father Patrick Sr. says that it was his son's agent, Barry Kolker's idea to audition for the soap.  Reluctant at first, he finally relented, telling wife Maureen that "If you want to go...
